Recommended: Squat Stands

Just wanted to put a plug in for Squat StandsYOU MUST ENSURE YOU ANNOTATE ALL LINKS WHETHER WORK AND FAMILY SAFE.. I ordered these on Jan 15 and they were at my box on Jan 20. They were ridiculously cheap compared to York's, IronMind's, etc. Also, they are way way sturdier than the BodySolid.

Shipping was cheap too, coming out of TN. I bought four pairs, paid the $215 and shipping was $38/pair. Great value and great stands. Highly recommended.

Those look good Brian. I'm in the market for another set, and this is right up my budget alley. I have 2 sets of the BodySolid ... looking forward, already, to having enough money to replace them.

Re: Recommended: Squat Stands

Man those look a lot like the ProMaximas and at a great price with reasonable shipping. Shipping is usually what kills me (freight)

Nice find. I ended up building my own and they are working very well, but more adjustment would be neccesary than what I can get for more than 2 users.

I'll have to keep this thread in the back of my mind!

Re: Recommended: Squat Stands

Now that I have a lifting platform I've been eying squat, bench and spotting stands.

4" height increments seems a bit too much to me but not being an engineer I don't know what the impact of 2" holes in a single bar like this might be.

I keep hoping for 1 set of racks with 2" increments for squats, 1" increments for bench and two sets of plastic/rubber lined cross members all for the price of the taylor or the promaxima.

It's a shame the "mass" market is for cheap equipment that won't get used rather than good equipment that will.

That said I love my bumpers and platform. Not having to catch the weight coming down is a big relief for the tendons in my elbows and shoulders.

Re: Recommended: Squat Stands

Do you know the weight limit for those? Some of the lighter weight stands only recommend a max load of 250 lbs. I don't know if that is 250 lbs each, but I doubt it. Probably 250 lbs total weight on the bar. Not strong enough for alot of people. Thanks

Check out the 3' x 8' platform!: (Yes, it's WFS)

What can possibly go wrong?

And why have we been wasting our money buying all that extra wood and rubber?

Re: Recommended: Squat Stands

Platform on that link looks nice, but costs nearly $300 to ship - that's nearly 65% of the original price. I'll stick with stall mats and plywood.
